Victorian grain growers get set for season 2016 Victorian grain growers are well placed to make informed decisions to help them maximise yield and profit potential throughout the coming cropping season... Mr Sonogan said the Update was very much focused on supporting growers in generating profitability from their farming systems, especially after last year's extremely dry season in many parts of the State... "Mr Hunt told attendees that while a current move to high input farming systems may provide for increased profitability in average to high rainfall years, more attention needs to be given to the business's ability to cope with successive poor performing years," Mr Sonogan said...

Pulse Breeding Australia will conduct a world class field pea breeding program that will deliver superior new varieties with increased productivity and profitability for field pea growers and which will expand the crops adaptation range in Australia... The program will aim to combine desirable genetic variation that will increase grain yield potential, reduce crop input costs, reduce crop risk and maintain grain market access... The PBA field pea breeding program will deliver superior field pea varieties for the major field pea production zones over the next 5 year period that combine improved yield potential and reliability, disease resistance (e.g. virus, mildew, blackspot, bacterial blight), adaptation (e.g. plant type, flowering habit, soil boron toxicity tolerance) and suitable grain for end use markets (e.g. Kaspa type, Dun type)...

The project has demonstrated that targeted agronomic research aimed at delivering best practice management (BPM) strategies for new pulse varieties can increase profitability and minimise production risk, when delivered through variety brochures and extension activities such as field days and industry forums... The project also produces an annual results summary which is widely distributed to industry (primarily consultants, leading pulse growers, researchers, commercial agronomists, Pulse Australia and PBA Release Advisory Group (RAG) members) through email and has received favourable feedback from many recipients... We believe that the tools and information developed by this project, in partnership with PBA and Pulse Australia, have maintained pulse production through the recent run of difficult seasons...
